An early own goal from United defender Luke Shaw – the 14th Barcelona have benefited from in the UEFA Champions League, equalling the competition record – proved enough to separate the teams at Old Trafford.

While the Catalan giants have won the last three meetings between the sides, a run that includes the UEFA Champions League finals of 2009 and 2011, United have won both previous two-legged contests.

United produced a memorable away display to retrieve their round of 16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain and reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2013/14. Barcelona ultimately cruised through their last-16 contest against Lyon en route to an unprecedented 12th successive last-eight appearance – although their last three UEFA Champions League campaigns have all ended at this stage.

United won their second European Cup at the Camp Nou, coming from a goal down to beat Bayern München 2-1 in the 1999 final with two added-time goals – substitute Solskjær scoring the winner.

PREVIOUS MEETINGS

Gerard Piqué and Sergio Busquets joined Messi in Barcelona’s line-up for both finals with United coach Michael Carrick in the opposing team for both games and Antonio Valencia appearing in 2011, when Chris Smalling was an unused substitute.
